The development of a new campsite within the Centres private walled garden has created a safe space for young people to come and experience camping and to engage with the natural environment developing camp and bush craft skills.  This is a great location to start a Duke of Edinburgh Award programme to held develop the basic skills of camping before embarking on the journey from Bronze to Gold Awards.
